But if you want to try this kind of job, there are some things that you might want to learn about how to become passport agent.

What are the Things You Might Need

Being a passport agent in the United States is one business that you can simply take for granted. In fact, the fact that you are handling documents like these will make you involved in national security, according to State Department. This is the primary reason why even if the work seems so simple, the process of being a passport agent calls for an in depth evaluation. If you want to become one, here are some of the things that you might actually care to secure first before you venture into this profession.

 

  • Proof that you are a US citizen
  • Photo identification that is issued by the state
  • Registration

Filling Up the Forms

The first thing that you have to do will be to get an employment with a non-federal passport facility that is authorized. Usually, these are agencies of the local as well as state government like the city hall in a locality. After this, you must fill up all the forms of signature as well as identification as mandated by the Department of State. This information bulk will then be shared with the department of customer service of US Passport Agency.

Proceed with the Training

The training for becoming a passport agent is usually computer based. All you have to do is to complete this interactive training wherein you will learn all the things that are directly associated to becoming a passport agent such as the procedures as well as policies in accepting a passport application.

Wait for the Results

When you are done with the training, the next thing that you have to do will be to apply the things that you have learned from these trainings. You must undergo some tests which will measure if you are already prepared to be a passport agent. Usually, these tests are also being given online and more often than not, they are expected to be completed after you are done with going through the modules. One you are taking the test, make sure that you will relax for you to answer all questions properly.
